About

I am a primary school teacher working in Swords, Co. Dublin. I received my education in University College Dublin (Bachelor of Arts), in Marino Institute of Education (Higher Diploma in Education) and in Maynooth University (Master of Education). I present a podcast, which can be found through all major podcast apps, as well as directly at matterseducational.podbean.com.

My research and professional interests include:

  • Bilingualism
  • Teaching and learning Irish in primary schools
  • Mathematical thinking for primary school pupils
  • Education policy
  • Critically reflective practice
  • Legal issues surrounding the education system
  • ICT in education
  • The science of learning
  • Evidence-based practice

All articles are my own, unless otherwise stated. This website and its associated podcast are funded entirely by myself and are run voluntarily. This is not a commercial website – I don’t sell anything.
